Re: High Score Challenge S12 - Championship Round - Qwak!

Good choice this is a great game, liking the smooth motion, cool graphics and minimal but decent sound.

Made it through to level 4, hoping to to get a few more goes in and improve.

Re: High Score Challenge S12 - R10 - Battle Tank

Don't know what to make of this one,love the concept, not liking the actual clunky game play too much, no option to play joystick unless I use mouse emulation through beeb-em. Will have another few turns and post what ever scores comes out, will be minimal. Well done for getting a decent score thoug...

Re: High Score Challenge S12 - R8 - Sorcery

My analysis of this game is it's mostly random in it's challenges. In theory, a good platformer should be somewhat predictable once you master the keys. Point in case, Yoyo was insanely difficult but very predictable once you had a plan. You could 'count' on it to not change unless you did somethin...

Re: High Score Challenge S12 - R8 - Sorcery

Not a bad game, jumps can be tricky and random elements make it challenging, made it to level 2.

Big bonus for allowing key redefine, I'm using WASD, Enter Jump, Shift Sword

Re: High Score Challenge S12 - R7 - Yoyo

Finally got into the 20k range, so easy to make lots of little mistakes. Super impressed by the number of levels and variety, slightly better controls would make this the perfect adventure platformer.

A map may help to better plan out an efficient route so I'm all for it, and you'd still need to be able to pull off the moves anyway, it may help avoid random deaths when moving from screen to screen so not sure if that is classed as cheating or not but I guess we'd all have the sam...
